Standing Firm

Legs and feet of a person standing in concrete sidewalk

My feet planted firmly,

An Advocate for justice.

Firm foundation holds,

Under girds, and supports me daily.

I stand for what I believe.

Who?

Psalm 94:16 AMP Bible

Overcome by

Evil doers

Who will take a stand?

In slavery to

Wickedness

Who’ll stand against it?

As I sit on my cozy couch this chilly December morn, drinking coffee after a breakfast of my favorite toast and jelly, I am enjoying the warmth of the heat and the quiet ambiance of my surroundings, and I am grateful for all I have.

My thoughts turn to those who are homeless, in shelters, or victims of human trafficking and abuse, or others trapped in lives of stress or poverty. The many who don’t have the comforts of home.

I pray for them, and do what I can to help them.

As I sit quietly

In my home’s cozy corner

My prayers travel far

Some Thoughts on This Last Day of November 2019

November 2019 calendar with fall leaves on it

Consider…

You can’t go back

And erase the past

You can go forward to create a

future

Next month I have chosen to do a challenge called “Dressember.”

For this challenge I have committed to wear a dress everyday for the month of December in order to raise awareness (and funds) in the campaign against human trafficking and modern slavery.

So some of my poetry next month may reflect on this as I journey thru each day of the challenge.

I will be making daily posts on my personal blog about my journey regarding this challenge as well as posting pics and info about Dressember and the fight against human trafficking and abuse.

If any of you would like to follow me on this journey I invite you to subscribe to my other blog at: Blog | Leona J. Atkinson | Inspirational Writer/Artist
